Erie, Pa – Cirque du Soleil returns to Erie in November 2016 with OVO, its newest touring show in arenas. The production will be presented at the Erie Insurance Arena November 17-20, for six performances only, as part of the global tour in arenas around North America. The show is presented by Visa Signature.
Thrilling more than 4.5 million people worldwide since the show premiered in Montreal in 2009 as the Big Top show, OVO will embark on a new journey, performing the same captivating production, but now in arenas, giving more people the opportunity to enjoy a Cirque du Soleil show in their own town.
About the Show:
OVO, meaning “egg” in Portuguese, is a headlong rush into a colorful ecosystem teeming with life, where insects work, eat, crawl, flutter, play, fight and look for love in a non-stop riot of energy and movement.
When a mysterious egg appears in their midst, the insects are awestruck and intensely curious about this iconic object that represents the enigma and cycles of their lives. It is love at first site when a gawky, quirky insect arrives in this bustling community and a fabulous ladybug catches his eye – and the feeling is mutual.
The cast of OVO is comprised of 50 performing artists from 12 countires specializing in many acrobatic acts. One highlight of OVO is the stunning Flying ACt in which a group of scarabs soar high about the stage, from both edges to the middle landing on a platform.
The creative team behind the world of OVO is: Artistic Guides Guy Laliberte and Gilles Ste-Croix; Writer, Director and Choreographer Deborah Colker (first female director at Cirque du Soleil); Director of Creation Chantal Tremblay; Set and props Designer Gringo Cardia; Costume Designer Liz Vandal; Composer and Musical Director Bema Ceppas; Lighting Designer Eric Champoux; Sound Designer Jonathan Deans and for the first time at Cirque du Soleil; Rigging and Acrobatic Equipment Designer Fred Gerard; Acrobatic Performance Designer Philippe Aubertin; and Makeup Designer Julie Begin.
